What we do

RSPCA Lincolnshire East rehabilitates and re-homes animals rescued by our Inspectors. We also promote responsible pet ownership and hold neutering and micro chipping animal action days.

We receive no Government money or any Lottery funding so the amount of help we can provide for animals is entirely dependent on how much money is generously donated by local people.

We also work with other local animal charities because with our limited funds we cannot do it all on our own!

10 things you didn’t know about the RSPCA

  1. We are not government funded – we rely on fundraisingdonations and legacies, which last year supported our work collecting and rescuing 118,994 animals and investigating 143,004 cruelty complaints.

  2. We are the main statutory enforcement agency for animal welfare, undertaking over 80% of the work of rescuing animals in need, investigating animal welfare offences and prosecuting offenders. Last year we secured 1,781 convictions. If we didn’t do it, nobody would.

  3. We have 320 inspectors, 50 animal welfare officers and 90 animal collection officers working across England and Wales. Our inspectors even had uniforms before the police.

  4. We are the only animal welfare organisation that looks after all types of animals, including wildlife, pets, farm and research animals in England and Wales. Our instrumental role in getting the  Animal Welfare Act 2006 passed, means we don’t have to wait until an animal has suffered before we can act.

  5. For every £1 given to us we spend 82p on animal welfare, 1p on governance and 17p goes into raising the next £1.

For all cases of suspected cruelty to animals, please call 0300 1234 999

In line with national policy, this RSPCA Branch does not euthanase any animal in our care, unless it is advised by a vet, or the animal is a danger to the public.

6. Last year we rehomed 9,038 dogs, more than any other organisation.  We found 27,987 cats their forever home and ‘pastures new’ for 427 horses – that’s nearly 11 Grand Nationals!

7. We care for pets of families fleeing domestic abuse until the owner has a safe place to live and can be reunited.

8. Our vice presidents include Brian May, Chris Packham, Bill Oddie and Brian Blessed and we have been supported by Ricky Gervais, Jamie Oliver, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall     and theSaccone Joly’s.

9. In 1874, inspired by the RSPCA, the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children was founded – the world’s first child protective agency. This led to the setup of    the NSPCC, who we still work closely with today due to the frequent links between child and animal cruelty. In addition, last year we spoke to 7,000 school pupils about animal     welfare.
